OKLAHOMA CITY— Congressman James Lankford’s campaign for United States Senate shows abounding support, raising over $3.7 million during his Senate campaign.
“I am honored that my positive message is resonating with Oklahomans and they have decided that the fight for real solutions is something that they want to get behind,” Lankford said.
“There is much work to be done to unite our nation and create real reform. We must focus on balancing the budget, addressing the failing Obamacare law and securing our nation from the threats of radical terrorists,” Lankford said.
Families for James Lankford reported nearly one million dollars, $944,451, cash on hand in Federal Election Commission October quarterly filing, including campaign financials through September 30, 2014. Between the June primary election and the October quarterly report, the Lankford campaign raised over $1.2 million.
Lankford has a strong lead in the open United States Senate race to fill the unexpired term of retiring Senator, Dr. Tom Coburn.
Along with overwhelming support from voters across Oklahoma, Lankford has been endorsed by conservative leaders and groups including the United States Chamber of Commerce, The National Federation of Independent Business, Concerned Women Political Action Committee, Phyllis Schlafly of Eagle Forum, Governor Mike Huckabee, Governor Mitt Romney, Senator Rand Paul, Chairman Paul Ryan, Chairman Darrell Issa, Governor Bobby Jindal, Ambassador John Bolton and Jay Sekulow among others.
